Age Friendly

​The community is being invited to participate in two upcoming forums that will help provide direction for the next stage of Lane Cove's Age-Friendly Strategy.

Being an 'age-friendly community' means that the area is a good place for older people to live, work and visit. Lane Cove, just like the rest of Australia, has an ageing population - the 2016 Census shows that 24% of Lane Cove's current population is over the age of 55.

People 55 and over who live, work or visit Lane Cove, as well as their carers, are invited to attend the consultation sessions and contribute their suggestions on how we can help address some of the issues faced by older people in our community. This could include issues experienced by older people who want to use public transport, walk or drive around the area, find appropriate housing, be involved in the community or attend social activities, or to get the information they need.

Those who can't make the forum sessions can still have their say by

  • Completing an online survey
  • Filling in a hard copy survey which is available at Lane Cove Library, Lane Cove Civic Centre and Sydney Community Services (formerly Lane Cove and North Side Community Services).
  • There will also be small discussion groups held with interested community groups and organisations using a 'Meeting in a Box' format.

For more information and to register for the forums, email Council's Manager – Community Services on csinclair@lanecove.nsw.gov.au, or phone 9911 3592.
